What would you get if you mixed 2 parts curated travel content with 1 part sophisticated filtering/organizational tools and 1 part local knowledge? The best place to research and plan your next trip.

On NileGuide, travelers can discover exactly what they’re looking for on their vacation. Whether it’s a boutique, kid-friendly hotel in Seattle or a hole-in-the-wall pub in Prague, we connect them to relevant suggestions that make for more rewarding travel experiences.

We believe anticipating and researching trips should be a fun, and exciting first step in the adventure. That’s why we curate content from the best travel sources and present it in an accessible, serendipitous way. We know it’s the locals who provide the best insights, so we let fellow travelers and our carefully-chosen, in-country street-level intel decide what’s worthy of highlighting (no pay-to-play content here!).
